I don’t want to talk. I just need my serenity back like when I took this.

Thursday’s Special: Where Words Fail, Music Speaks

The scene takes me to Lago di Piano, a small lake close to Lago Lugano in Italy. Words were superfluous. Music was the only thing that could complement the setting sun over the still lake.



Aldo dedicated this song to Angelina, his grandmother, but I dedicate this post to a dear blogger, Sylvia from

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of Heavens

Weekly Photo Challenge: GOLDEN HOUR

Now, this is a broad subject; as far as I know it can happen at sunrise or at sunset. The attached photo happened just before the dusk on Amalfi coast.

As much as I would love to go out now in search of a “perfect” photo I cannot, as I am busy packing for my 2-week holiday.

I wish I could spend some time viewing your blogs and answering your comments and commenting on yours, but it will have to wait till I come back. Believe me, this is the most needed holiday ever – both hubby and I are faced with job insecurity on our way back home, and though I’d be happy if I could say I am glad that Croatia has finally joined EU, I have to admit – I hate my new country.

The bellow photo was taken two years ago  – since then my knowledge and understanding of photography has changed and it would not look quite the same now 😉

Weekly Photo Challenge: A Romantic Escape

In the shadow of the majestic Notre Dame there is a bridge known as Pont de l’Archevêché where people leave their love padlocks locked on the structure of the bridge. On May 3, hubby bought one of these, engraved our initials on it, chained it to the bridge, and tossed the key into the Seine. A street musician was playing one of my favourite chansons La bohème. It was the day when I took this sunset photo of Notre Dame, and without doubt the most romantic day on my trip.

Weekly Photo Challenge: SILHOUETTE

For this occasion I am attaching an old photo that may not be perfect, but I am fond of the view, and I look at it often. And here is the music to go with it.
